Have you watched telenovelas about a rich guy falling in love with a poor girl? Or the other way around? It usually ends happily ever after. Well, in reality, it doesn't quite fit!
There is a real story going around online. About a young lady who kept on rejecting her suitor because of his social status. She doesn't like the idea being with a man who is poor enough because that will be embarrassing to her and her family.
She said to the young man that she will never lay her eyes on him, nor give her love to him. So better he finds someone that suited his own poor lifestyle.
Ten years after, the woman and the poor guy from her past met at a shopping mall. She recognized him at that instant. She began boasting about her husband who is earning about 15,700 dollars a month!
The man didn't show the obvious, but he's hurt by the woman's comment. Sure enough, her behavior towards him did not change. She's still the same woman who wants to live for money.
Moments later, her husband appeared and called the man, "Sir". After a brief introduction, the man smiled and left. The woman can't utter a word out of disbelief! She couldn't fathom that the man was her husband's boss. He's in fact a millionaire and still a bachelor at his age.
The husband went on to tell the story how sad and lonely his boss' life was. How his boss fell for a rich girl who not once considered his love for her because of his social status way back then. But, instead, he made this woe into a turning point in his life where he worked his hardest and became wealthy.
This story doesn't have a happy ending, but it sure gives us a glimpse of one's true self. A person's true value is what's in his heart and not what's inside his bank account!
